My first big year of weddings was 2010. It was the first wedding season that I was shooting more weddings on my own than with other studios. I had a few clients that year who’s weddings still stand out to me. I am starting a new “series” on the blog called SGP Throwback! We are going to be posting them intermittently with more recent weddings to take a look back through my archives from earlier in my career. Meredith and Scott’s Marina Bay Wedding was one of my first weddings where I felt the client – friendship relationship had broken down. They let me get to know them as well as they could, initially meeting me at Marina Bay for drinks to discuss details of their day. Scott is in the National Guard and he was going to be in uniform for the wedding. Marina Bay closed as a wedding venue after 2010, but being just outside of Boston and having the view over the bay was fantastic. I’ve been back to photograph Meredith, Scott, and their new baby since the wedding, and hope they have me back again to catch up every couple of years. They continue to be some of my biggest fans, and favorite clients.
